ESPRIT NSX : Speed Hunters

The reason you didn’t see any shots of the Esprit NSX on the Part 3 of the HKS Premium Day coverage is that I wanted to dedicate a spotlight to this very special car. As you may recall its time at the Lap Battle event in Tsukuba back in December ended early due to mechanical trouble but it was running better than ever at Fuji. It was the fastest car in the 2WD class of the Fuji Speed Max, Tarzan Yamada managing to tame the savage power delivery and record a 1’43″94 which is truly beyond fast.

This dry carbon scoop on the rear trunk area of the car seems to be there to direct cooling air towards the transmission.

Is this the best NSX ever to come out of Japan? Maybe the purists will not agree as it’s been turbocharged and fettled with too much…what do you guys think?
